Worlds of Words
Worlds of Words is the largest international collection in the United States, and it’s right here in the College of Education. It’s a magical place — a place where lives change, thanks to the power of books. In fact, there’s only one larger international collection in the world, and it resides in a medieval castle just west of Munich.
